The Only Way Out

October 27, 2014

the-only-way-out-is-through… is through.

You NEVER overcome your problems by abandoning your path. You only succeed by seeing it through.

In life it doesn’t matter what you are going through, it only matters that you get yourself through it. Getting through it teaches you about yourself – it gives you a new set of tools to learn how to live your life. And once learned, that set of tools will forever pave the way to a happier and more fulfilling existence for you.

The truth is that you can never hide from your pain. It is always there, but you have a choice as to how you can deal with it. If you succumb to the pain, it will always win, but if you stand up to it, it will never be able to stop you.

Running from your problems NEVER solves them. Trying to avoid the pain only delays the inevitable. The only way to get to the other side is to brave your way through the lesson, the hardship and the pain. It may not be the popular response, but it is the only constructive response. Once you can move beyond the painful experience, that experience is free to shift for you and the sun comes out again.

Sitting out on the grass in the pouring rain only gets you wet. Crying about it will not keep you dry, but if you get up off the grass and run towards shelter, you have half a chance of staying dry. You cannot think your way through your pain, you have to get up and take action in order for things to change. The only way out is through. Are you ready to go through it all to get to the other side? Your ability to heal is contingent on it.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
